BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to determine pharmacokinetic interaction of ceftriaxone and polyherbal drug (Fibrosin(®)) in lactating goats following single dose intramammary administration of ceftriaxone with 1 h pre-single dose oral administration of Fibrosin(®). METHODS Pharmacokinetic interaction of ceftriaxone and Fibrosin(®) was(More)
Severity of arsenic toxicity was reported to vary depending on its species. The present study reflects the status of different species of arsenic in goat following long-term exposure of arsenic leading to hepatic damage. The experiment was conducted with six black Bengal goats, which were administered with sodium arsenite orally at a dose rate of 2 mgkg(-1)(More)
AIMS The aim of the present study was to characterize TRPV4 channels in pregnant and nonpregnant mouse uterus and examine their functional role in spontaneous and agonist-induced contractions. MAIN METHODS We used RT-PCR, Western blot and immunohistochemistry experiments to demonstrate the presence of TRPV4 mRNA and protein, respectively in both pregnant(More)
Fifteen broiler chickens (COBB 400) of 42 days of age weighing 1.8 to 2.0 kg were equally divided into 3 groups, each consisting of 5 birds. Hepatopathy was induced by oral administration of paracetamol while nephropathy was induced by intravenous administration of uranyl nitrate. Kinetic study was investigated in healthy, hepatopathic and nephropathic(More)
We have recently reported that pre-treatment, but not the post-treatment with atorvastatin showed survival benefit and improved hemodynamic functions in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model of sepsis in mice. Here we examined whether combined treatment with atorvastatin and imipenem after onset of sepsis can prolong survival and improve vascular(More)
The aim of the present work was to study the mechanism of action of curcumin in vasomotion of a physiologically important artery of ruminant i.e. ruminal artery. ACh and SNP were used to study the role of endothelium in relaxation of this artery. Vasorelaxatation by curcumin was studied in a dose dependent manner, on rings precontracted with 5-hydroxy(More)
Supply of arsenic free water in the arsenic endemic zone of West Bengal since a long time could not prevent arsenicosis in human completely. So exploration of arsenic contamination at all levels of food chain may be important. The report on arsenicosis in cattle of arsenic affected zone is scarcely available. In the present study, cattle from villages of(More)
We investigated the effect of erythropoietin (EPO) posttreatment on survival time and vascular functions in a mouse model of sepsis. Sepsis was induced by cecal ligation and puncture. After 20 ± 2 hours of sepsis, thoracic aorta was isolated for assessing its reactivity to norepinephrine (NE) and acetylcholine (ACh). We also measured the tissue nitric oxide(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective was to study the effect of Bauhinia variegata L. stem bark powder as adjunct therapy in chronic Staphylococcus aureus mastitis in goat. MATERIALS AND METHODS Mastitis was induced by intracisternal inoculation of coagulase positive S. aureus (J638) at the concentration of 2000 colony forming units. Group I animals were treated with(More)
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of alcoholic extract of Dalbergia sissoo leaf extract (DSE) on isoproterenol (ISP)-induced myocardial injury in rats. Evaluation of three doses (30, 100 and 300 mg/kg of body weight) of DSE was done in ISP-treated rats. ISP was used at 85 mg/kg body weight by subcutaneous route for two subsequent days(More)
